Abstract

The Covid-19 pandemic has shocked millions of people in the world and hindered public sector development not to mention the way the governments formulate the public policy making process. In handling the spread of the virus, the ultimate goal of government is responsible to decrease the casualties and also the number of deaths. However, the government let alone in pact has been facing social, political and economic’ constraints. The question is how the governments involve the other stakeholders relevant to tackle the problems? One alternative solution is to enlarge, involve and collaborate the other actors who in charge in formulating public policy by utilising networks. By using the dialectical policy networks analysis, the study indicates the importance of networks in overcoming socio, economic and political barriers to formulation process. Lesson learned from West Java Provincial Government echoes that policy networks include multiple actors and utilise resources from a range of stakeholders involved in the policy making. As network is involved in policy making process, thus the government is not just the dominant actor who take in charge in the policy process, it requires the other governments and non-governmental institutions, private sectors as well as public participations.
